Young thieves stealing $1,000 worth of equipment from ironworkers truck caught on tape

Madison County,Ill.
Three suspected thieves were caught on tape stealing very expensive equipment off the truck of an ironworker.

It happened in the 1400 block of Ninth Street in Cottage Hills.

They hop on the back of an ironworker's truck, grab cables, tools and anything made of copper.

Police say these suspected crooks will sell it for cash.

The trio of thieves has no idea that their alleged truck-hopping theft during the early morning hours of June 12th, along with their faces, their desperate dash and wait for a getaway car, are all caught on tape.

In less than a year, thieves have targeted Pam Hamilton's husband's truck four times as it sat in their driveway in Cottage Hills.

Investigators believe the videotaped thieves are between the ages of 16 and 21.
